|Abrupt Climate Change - Alder Stone Fuller - Radio Ecoshock|
We've been shown the sloping graphs of rising heat and seas by the IPCC. But scientists studying deep time find otherwise. The climate tends to shift relatively rapidly, as much as 4 degrees C in a decade or less. Dr. Alder Stone Fuller in a two-part interview with Alex Smith of Radio Ecoshock. He teaches Gaia 101 and encourages "adaptability" and "shock-proofing" vital systems like water and food, to be ready for big climate change...

|Tim Garrett - Energy = Wealth = Ruined Atmosphere - Radio Ecoshock|
University of Utah Physics Professor Dr. Tim Garrett explains why fossil-based wealth leads to both hyper-inflation and a ruined climate. All from a published, peer-reviewed paper in Journal "Climatic Change". According to our energy and wealth equation, only a sudden economic collapse could save us from 5 degrees Celsius global temperature rise (or more) by 2100. And we'll get over 100% inflation along the way...
